Hope your all keeping well and safe in this unusual time. I'm off work so am trying to get some other things done.
Here's my question.
I'm looking to make a carbon copy of my existing phpBB forum but on the same server/domain but with a different directory name. The reason is this;
I wan't to make some changes and connect some add-on's without affecting the live forum. I also need to check and see any errors that may occur without affecting users. Its going to take a lot of time so its the best option without bothering users.
The current live forum is located in directory named, 'forum'. The new directory will be called 'forums' - note the extra 's'.
I can use these;
- Knowledge Base - Transferring Your Board to a New Host or Domain
- Knowledge Base - Fixing incorrect cookie settings
- I'll create a new database and change the 'config.php' in the new directory, 'forums', to connect to the new database.
- I'll need to disable emails. General>Email Settings>Disable all emails
Question 2: Have I missed anything?
Thanks all and keep safe,
